Sophomore guard continues to lead Grafton girls, this time with career-high scoring show against Port

Grafton girls’ basketball coach Mike Grzesiak said he prefers to have the scoring load be spread out among his players.sports1

But when some aren’t putting the ball in the basket, Grzesiak said he’s fine with letting Hannah Belanger take over.

Welcome to the ridiculous first half of last Friday’s  game against Port Washington. Belanger barely missed a shot in scoring 26 of her game-high 31 points to carry the Black Hawks to a 63-51 victory.

Belanger did most of her damage inside, driving past some defenders for scores and draining other baskets while contested.

The sophomore star guard, who came into the game averaging 18.8 points per contest, insists it wasn’t all her.

“I really have to give credit to my teammates because they found me when I was open, and they got out of the way when I was trying to drive, and that created space for me,” Belanger said.

“I really think it was a team effort in the first half.”

Port coach Jakob Wahl said his team didn’t do enough to keep Belanger in check.

“Obviously, she’s an awesome player. We knew coming into the game that if we wanted a chance to win we’ve got to slow her down some,” he said.
